Butterfly art... a little bit of spring

Today the hubby and I went to some yards sales. It was Peaches to Beaches, an annual event in Georgia. We stayed within our local county, but scored some great stuff. He got a fogger for $5 and some other Halloween stuff.  I got some pumpkins (4) so maybe this fall you will see some pumpkin crafts from me. I've saved links to a bunch that I saw last year. I also got two pillows for 50 cents each that I can use for forms for some of my future pillow projects that I want to try. It was a good day.

After we came home, I finished up this framed butterfly art.


The frame is from the Dollar Tree and I die cut the butterfly with a Sizzix die and cut a circle from Bazzill cardstock with a Spellbinders die. I embellished the butterfly with flowers and pearls.  Here is close up:

I got the inspiration for this from a set of butterfly towels in my guest bath. They have butterflies with flowers embroidered on them. The background paper is from K&Co. Amy Butler. I added a strip of ribbon and a bow. It goes great with my other green decor in my office/craft space.

Thanks for stopping by.
I'll be linking up here:
